"Memorymoog (not Memorymoog Plus), serial number 2289, which was completely serviced by RetroLinear. I am the original owner, it's in great condition, and it sounds incredible. Comes with a road case, owner's manual (w/service manual), double foot switch, attenuation pedal (doesn't work, but should be cheap to repair), and factory program cassette tape."

Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 3.1

via this auction

"This is an original Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 rev 3.1! This example was serviced by vintage synthesizer repair/restoration experts RetroLinear in 2017. They replaced the famously hot and unstable power supply with a modern one that is cooler, more efficient, and reliable. The unit was recapped, keyboard contacts cleaned, keyboard rebushing-ed, and calibrated. All features are in working order and there are no known issues. It sounds fantastic and is an inspiration to play!"

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"Quite possibly the nicest monopoly one could get their hands on today..
Great analog sound all around - have a listen to the demo.

This MonoPoly has been meticulously restored and upgraded to the max here at RetroLinear
• Complete electronic rebuild: (detailed report will be provided with sale of instrument)
• All switches, knobs, key contacts cleaned, rebuilt were possible.
• Full calibration, burn-in and bench tested - 100% operational
• Solid Red-Walnut case, semi gloss clear coating
• MidiPoly upgrade

Cosmetic condition overall a solid 9.9/10 - All graphics, metalwork, keys, knobs in like new condition..
Virtually no signs on use. The original case was made of vinyl wrapped flake-board however was starting to flake apart this is a known issue with most Korg products of the 80's. The ideal solution was making a new case out of actual wood instead of faux-wood. Case made by Valhalla woodworking - absolute top-notch build quality, the wood itself is nicely figured too!

Includes a studio slip cover, original manuals, and a printed copy of the midi-poly directions."

Moog Memorymoog LAMM SN 2299

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.


via this auction

"Just got it back from RetroLinear in Philadelphia, PA. where I had them install a new switching power supply making it even more reliable and quiet. They also fixed an issue with voice card 1 (please see attached service bill).

Included are two Moog 1120 foot pedals, one Moog 1122 dual switch pedal, original owners manual and service manual, LAMM instructions and a beach duty vinyl keyboard cover.
The only issue I just discovered today is that the unbalanced output is a bit noisy and so is the headphone output socket. Not quite sure why this is the case, but I alway used the balanced output and it is quiet and works fine. I will include a nice balanced to 1/4” cable with the keyboard."

I will also include a 12 channel snake that I have used with the keyboard (see picture). Included is an Oberheim foot switch, original owners manual, 6 brand new encoders, heavy duty vinyl keyboard cover."

High and mighty- The ARP 2500 w/Don Slepian @ RetroLinear


RetroLinear

"Resurrected from the dead, the mighty ARP2500. A rather lengthy restoration project requiring nearly countless hours of reworking, development of new circuits, reverse engineering failed potted modules to restore operation and improve performance.

Don Slepian paid us a visit and kindly recorded around 20 minutes of musical snippets on the ARP2500 which has been arranged as a single track for your enjoyment!

Many thanks to Don for his musical expertise in steering the ARP2500 and Edwin Kiddo for his 2500!"

Moog Memorymoog LAMM - "The Blue Beast" w/ Custom Flight Case SN 1047

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.
via this auction

"A 'regular' Memorymoog in good shape is an incredible find. The Blue Beast's feature set and condition, however, are unmatched. You can see from the photos that, cosmetically, the Blue Beast is exceptional. It sounds better than it looks. The Blue Beast has lived in my home studio and has never been gigged or loaned...

This gorgeous Memorymoog LAMM is an extremely rare and valuable instrument. It is a low serial number (1047) model with black side panels (few had black sides; most are silver). It was thoroughly overhauled in 2013 by Rudi Linhard to become a Lintronics Advanced Memorymoog (LAMM). Lintronics also replaced the original red LEDs with blue LEDs, and replaced the solid black mod wheels with luminescent blue LED wheels, motivating Rudi Linhard to nickname this monster "Blue Beast".

The synth has also been meticulously maintained and further refined by Retrolinear, Inc., one of the premier vintage electronics repair and restoration companies (see Retrolinear's website for their "A-list" band clients). Among other things, Retrolinear replaced the original power supply with an upgraded unit. The new power supply is much lighter. More importantly, it is also silent. (Factory Memorymoogs used a noisy fan.) Retrolinear has also restored or replaced keybed elements and voice chips. All six voices tune.

Included in the sale is a custom flight case fabricated by Mark Dehart at Rock Hard Road Cases. Also included are copies of original Moog Memorymoog service and technical manuals; the Lintronics LAMM manual; and documents showing the LAMM and maintenance work provided."

Vintage ARP Quadra Poly Synthesizer

Note: Auction links are affiliate links for which the site may be compensated.
ARP Quadra demo @ RetroLinear Published on Dec 18, 2018 RetroLinear


via this auction

"We're proud to offer this amazing ARP Quadra for sale. This synth has been painstakingly restored and upgraded to 11 in every way possible. Before we get into specifics on its electronic restoration. Cosmetically speaking this synthesizer is in great condition a solid 8/10 overall. There are signs of use as it's from the late 1970s. The button panel had a few areas which began to split (this is a notorious problem) unfortunately no companies produce replacements. We've fabricated a clear vinyl overlay using quality 3m material which is affixed atop the existing button strip, effectively bolstering the button strip. Both wooden sides have imperfections, metal work overall is clean, few touched up areas. Please be sure to check out all the pictures.

ARP dove head first into the Polysynth race combining the OMNI and SOLUS into one single unit with ADSR, phasing , chorus, arpeggiator , after-touch ,and basic preset memory. These were almost unheard of features in a single unit during the late 1970's- quite ahead of its time. Tonally this synth sounds vast - it produces a massive analog expanse of lush string tones layered in chorus and phasing. Has the signature ARP lead sound as well. Overall it's hard to beat! Independent 1/4" outputs for each section bass, strings, poly and lead synth or stereo left / right output or mono. Lots of output flexibility.
